I was thinking about heavy metal music this morning as I was listening to The Devil Wears Prada and remembered an old VHS documentary that we used to have when I was a teenager called Hell's Bells. It was pretty good for what it was, but I remember them painting a very negative picture of rock music. I'm pretty sure they flat out condemned rock music in any form as both spiritually dangerous and physically damaging to you. Some obviously might not be helpful to listen to when they're flat out worshiping the Devil, but is the genre as a whole just flat out of the Devil? They seem to think it is (or at least they did at the time the video was made).
So that's my question: Is heavy metal music inherently evil? Can the heaviest sounding music, even with growling vocals, glorify God? I absolutely think it can. I might expound on that in a post, I might not. But I want to hear your thoughts.
